Piscataway Hills is a unique residential community in southern Prince George’s County. Located in Fort Washington off Indian Head Highway, and just 7 short miles outside the Capital Beltway, it is within easy commuting distance to Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia.
Piscataway Hills rises from the northeastern banks of Piscataway Creek off the Potomac River and is adjoined by national parkland on one side and county parkland on the other side. Across the River, it is topographically visible from Mount Vernon, which protects the view of trees, plants and wildlife on this historic Maryland shoreline.
This one-of-a-kind community was developed by a wide variety of builders and has produced an architectural mixture of homes, most maintaining a significant portion of trees and thereby preserving the beauty of a natural wooded setting and supporting wildlife.
The neighborhood takes its name from the Piscataway Indians that lived on the land until the mid 1600’s. Early explorers to the Piscataway area included Captain John Smith, who mapped the area.
